Default Whos still waiting for the q6600?

Just wondering...cause I sure am Ive been calling Frys for the last 2 weeks and all they had was 27 q6600 B3s 2 weeks ago but now all they have is 8 q6600 open box B3s, and they say their bound to get new shipments in at any time ( hopefully these new shipments will be g0 ).

An alternate plan of mine was to order from tank guys ( only place to order that guarentees g0 ) but they don't give a shipping date and the item is backordered.

The prices are dropping fast on Zipzoomfly and newegg ( as low as 285 now ), but I can't take the risk if its B3 or not since I purposly believe people write BS reviews like on newegg "order now and for sure you will get a g0!".

Don't suggest I just get a B3, cause surely I haven't waited THIS long to get a B3.

I got all my other parts and even installed the drives in my empty case

Didn't someone say that the B3 can be compared to the G0? It could go to about 3.3~3.4GHz right?

Haha Gabb. Yeah, just go with vernong1992's suggestion, even though you said,"An alternate plan of mine was to order from tank guys ( only place to order that guarantees g0 ) but they don't give a shipping date and the item is back-ordered."
